I posted a while back about looking for some black stitch cap toes. I was looking for something sleek with somewhat of a European shape. I really like the 108 last (have the Clifton in brown and burg.) but there isn't a stitch cap on that last currently and the PA doesn't really suit me. A few of my fellow forum members suggested Meermin or Loake 1800. (The AS, CJ and others are out of my price range) I have found a pair from each I am interested in and would like to hear a few opinions. Anyone have experience with these? Thanks!!
I really like the 8 last also. The Carlyle is my favorite shoe. I also have the Rutledge on the 333 last, same as Harrison. It's a great shoe. Reminds me of the meermin above. And it's a notch above the average calf shoe.
To echo others about jos a bank. Jos A Bank has a great sale going right now.
